About This Florida Tech Life

I'm Ted Petersen, assistant professor of communication at Florida Tech. This Florida Tech Life developed from my "Publishing and the Internet" course..

I required my students to do a little journalism. They had to come up with a story, line up some sources, use digital audio recorders to record the interviews and any natural sounds, take photos, write a script, edit the audio, and finally publish their podcast in an HMTL online document.

This Florida Tech Life isn't going to hide the fact that we are totally ripping off Ira Glass's popular NPR program This American Life. Am I embarrassed about it? Maybe a little. But we had a lot of fun and learned a ton making it. Please check back regularly for updates, and click on the contact link if you'd like more information, want to be involved, or have a story idea.
